Mini-Readathon | Weekend Edition | Wrap-up

SO, APPARENTLY, THIS DIDN’T POST WHEN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO, SO IT’S A WEEK LATE. OOPS.


Hi everyone!

So, unfortunately, I didn’t get to read any tonight, as I was at work all night. I did manage to read 48 pages of “Swear” before going to work.

I didn’t finish any books during this Readathon, but that is okay. I plan on doing at least 1 Readathon a month – some may be my own and some may be with others.

Currently Reading | February 18, 2018

Hello everyone!

Has it really been a week already? It doesn’t feel like it!

FEBRUARY 11TH-17TH

During last week, I only read one of my anticipated 2 books…and it wasn’t the ones I was hoping to read. I read “Backlash” by Sarah Darer Littman. I got “Swear” by Nina Malkin about half-way through the week and I had started it, but I did not finish it (it is a lot longer than I thought it was). My boyfriend’s family went on vacation to Belize the last two weeks, and they came back yesterday morning.

TODAY

I work later today, so not much reading will be getting done. I am currently working on homework (like always) – the only homework that I have today is for one of my MCS lecture classes.

CURRENTLY READING

I am still in the middle of reading a bunch of books. I started another book on my Nook, so those pages, as well, will not line up with the ones on GoodReads.

  • Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings – page 12 out of 534
  • The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer – page 301 out of 521
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – page 63 out of 172
  • The Key by Jennifer Anne Davis – page 699 out of 3947. This is on my phone, so the pages are wacky. I am 18% done this book.
  • The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers – page 40 out of 478. This is on my Nook, so the pages are wacky. I am 8% done this book.
  • Swear by Nina Malkin – page 96 out of 468
  • Darker by E.L. James – page 32 out of 393. This is on my Nook, so the pages are wacky. I am 8% done this book.

FEBRUARY 18TH-24TH

This week, I plan on finishing “Swear” by Nina Malkin and starting/completing “Nobody Walks” by Dennis M. Walsh. If I finish those, I plan on starting “Frostblood” by Elly Blake.

As always, I have a lot of homework to due this week, so these goals are just…there…

Until my next post,

Stephanie

Mini-Readathon | Weekend Edition | Update #1

Hey guys!

I just wanted to update y’all on how everything is going so far.

So, I kind of started my own readathon a little bit late – I had some homework to finish. I was reading for about 45 minutes before I fell asleep………I was only asleep for 20-25 minutes because my boyfriend had come in from work. I read a little bit more before we decided to order some take-out for dinner. I read 45 pages of “Swear” before dinner. During dinner, I had read some of “Darker” by E.L. James on my Nook (so I didn’t get any of my physical books dirty). I read about 7% of that. After dinner, I took a shower and now, I am going to drink a beer (yes, I am legal) and read some more of “Swear” and I will update you all before I go to bed.

Swear: on page 52 out of 468

Darker: about 7% done

Until my next post,

Mini-Readathon | Weekend Edition

Hey guys!

So, I was thinking that since I don’t have much homework this weekend, that I would do a weekend-long readathon.

The readathon is from 3pm this afternoon until 10pm Sunday night.

Obviously, part of my time will be dedicated to homework and other part of my time will be dedicated to work, but we will get through this.

I am hoping to read a couple books this weekend:

  1. “Swear” by Nina Malkin
  2. “Nobody Walks” by Dennis M. Walsh
  3. “Frostblood” by Elly Blake
  4. “Twilight: The Graphic Novel: Volume 1” by Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim
  5. “The Immortal Rules” by Julie Kagawa
  6. “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs
  7. “Hopeless” by Colleen Hoover

I know, it is a pretty ambitious TBR. However, if I can get through at least 4 of these books over this weekend, I will deem this a very successful readathon for me.

I will be updating throughout the weekend, so keep an eye out for my updates!

Until my next post,

Stephanie

Book Review: “Backlash” by Sarah Darer Littman

Hey guys!

So, I finished this book in one sitting and I can’t believe it. I haven’t done that in a while.

Overview from GoodReads:

He says: You’re an awful person. He says: What makes you think I would ever ask you out? He says: The world would be a better place without you in it. Lara just got told off on Facebook. She thought that Christian liked her, that he was finally going to ask her to his school’s homecoming dance. They’ve been talking online for weeks, so what’s with the sudden change? And where does he get off saying horrible things on her wall? Even worse – are they true? It’s been a long time since Lara’s felt this bad, this depressed, this ugly. She’s worked really hard to become pretty and happy – and make new friends after what happened in middle school. Bree used to be best friends with overweight, depressed Lara, but constantly listening to Lara’s issues got to be too much. Secretly, Bree’s glad Christian called Lara out. Lara’s not nearly as amazing as people think. But no one realized just how far Christian’s harsh comments would push Lara. Not even Bree. As online life collides with real life, things spiral out of control, and not just for Lara. Because when the truth starts to come together, the backlash is even more devastating than anyone could have ever imagined.

I think I found a new favorite book. This story is about a teenage girl getting bullied online and attemping suicide because of it. This book shows what happens when a situation like this arises. I recommend EVERYBODY read this book. It is a life-changer.
